GIS Development Training​ Course Overview

The GIS (Geographic Information System) is a framework to gather, manage, and analyse data. GIS integrates several types of data and analyses spatial location as well as organises layers of information into visualisations using maps and 3Dscenes. GIS comes down to just the following for simple ideas:

  • Create geographic data
  • Manage it
  • Analyse it
  • Display it on a map

The Knowledge Academy’s GIS Development Training course is designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the fundamentals of geographic information systems. This course will explore the world of spatial analysis and cartography with GIS. Delegates will learn the basics of ArcGIS – the leading software tool. Delegates will get an understanding of how GIS has been developed from paper maps to the globally integrated electronic software packages.

During this 1-day course, delegates will gain knowledge of how to analyse data with geoprocessing tools. In addition, they will learn about core map elements and symbology. Our expert instructors will equip you with the extensive knowledge making the course the best it can be. Delegates will learn how to create and use map packages. Furthermore, they will also get an understanding of how to upload packages to ArcGIS online. Post completion of this training, delegates will be able to create layer files and packages.
